The top of the mountain is the Mourre Nègre which is 1125m high. It is also a Regional Natural Parc since 1977 because it is a favourable land for extremely diversified wildlife.

 The Luberon has also a significant cultural value, because there are the Castles of Lourmarin, La Tour d’Aigues… that people can visit if they want. The exhausted visitors or the less sporty ones will be able to taste very good regional specialties like olive oil, honey and also wine and cheese. Thus, the Luberon has known how to protect its cultural and gourmet heritage and people can visit some important city like Pertuis or Cavaillon, but also some lovely village like Bonnieux and Gordes which still promote cultural and gastronomic values in this place.
